I'm tired of cable and sat! I have been watching all my favorite shows on my pc. what is the best set top box for streaming web tv? I have seen a couple out there but they are limited to the channels they have programed into them and youtube! What I wan't is something inexpensive that has web browser capabilities so i can go to hulu, and the networks, and one of my favorites is tv-links.cc. I don't need HD since I only have 2 MB connection and a bandwidth cap of 42G

I have a Vizio full HDTV, but it's not equipped with an Ethernet port nor does it have wifi. I need a set top box - or maybe a game console? What's the best set-top box out there that will give my the full 1900x1080 display and look good?

Take a look at Roku. The new Apple TV is also nice if you have a bunch of iTunes content. If you just want to stream Netflix, Hulu etc I've heard great things about Roku.

You could also just get a networked blue-ray player, or game console.

The Google TV software reportedly includes a version of Google's Chrome browser for doing some light surfing, as well. More details for

Apple TV works great.
And for Nency Michel...you really need to stop copying and pasting your post from other websites and pretend they are your posts. Did you read the forum rules?
